This document keeps a record of who maintains each functional area of Tcl ().
Listed below are Tcl's functional units, in the same order as in . See  for the precise definition of what code belongs to what area. The area names are changed to match the Categories in Tcl's SourceForge Bug Manager http://sourceforge.net/bugs/?group_id=10894 .
Note that an area can have more than one maintainer. When the maintenance of the entire area requires several types of expertise, it is desirable to have more than one maintainer.
In several of the areas below, there are maintainers who have volunteered to provide special expertise (for example, assistance with programming and testing for the Mac platform) to assist in maintaining an area, but who have not taken on the whole area. These maintainers are indicated by a parenthesized designation of their expertise.
For each of Tcl's functional units, the following maintainers are assigned:

The following Categories in Tcl's SourceForge Bug Tracker should be mapped to new Categories corresponding to a maintained area of Tcl, when seeking the appropriate maintainer:
[resource] (obsolete) - Used for closed old reports about the resource command that was implemented only on the now unsupported Mac Classic platform.
Mac Classic (obsolete) - Used for closed old reports about other issues on the now unsupported Mac Classic platform.
Other - Used for reports that span several categories. Also includes many closed old reports from before the time the current categories were established.
Sections Without Maintainers
Those sections without a maintainer are maintained by the Tcl Core Team with each change requiring TYANNOTT review.
